Creating Digital Confidence with Test Automation
Engineering teams understand the importance of a comprehensive continuous testing strategy to build digital confidence, improve user experience, and accelerate release velocity. However, when beginning on the journey to continuous testing, the task of building and executing a strategy that provides clear value can be challenging. Whether it’s designing automation from scratch, understanding where you can scale the value of your tests throughout the pipeline and across teams, or demonstrating the value that quality brings to larger business objectives, building a test automation strategy sometimes creates a web that is seemingly too complex to untangle.
In this webinar, Yoosuf Maktoum, Senior Manager of Quality Engineering at Sysco Corporation, discusses a unique test automation design pattern that both supports and accelerates automation efforts. This framework, leveraging open source technologies, enables reusability, smarter and faster automation, and is suitable in both a DevOps and Agile workflow. He then demonstrates how this framework can be applied to a single test automation script for functional and nonfunctional tests, test data management, and test environment management, as well as how it can support testing for both legacy and modern applications. Through these methods, his team is able to provide quality as a service across the organization.
In this session you will learn:
- Basic design principles to consider when building out automation, and how open source can augment your strategy
- How to apply a single automation framework across various types of testing (web, mobile, API, and standalone automation)
- Strategies for aligning testing with business objectives to demonstrate value to leadership
